It is interesting. Both here with the politically oriented and out there in the general opinionation. Biden is just better than Trump. That's it. No real examination as to how or why. The other side is just wrong. Totally. Period.
No if. No when. No introspection.  All ideology. We'll learn nothing except what the abomination of desolation looks like. The gone too far. The fictitious Gom Jabbar of the non-fiction world. A means to an end, and I mean literally. Doesn't matter. Destroy the nation from the inside out.  Either that or words are just things people say when it suits a stony narrative. Everyone talking. Few listening...
But of course I'm being quasi-religious and melodramatic if not needlessly cryptic and opaque...


The Walrus And The Carpenter

Lewis Carroll

"The sun was shining on the sea,
  Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
      The billows smooth and bright —
And this was odd, because it was
      The middle of the night.
 
The moon was shining sulkily,
      Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
      After the day was done —
"It's very rude of him," she said,
      "To come and spoil the fun."
 
The sea was wet as wet could be,
      The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
      No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead —
      There were no birds to fly.
 
The Walrus and the Carpenter
      Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
      Such quantities of sand:
If this were only cleared away,'
      They said, it would be grand!'
 
If seven maids with seven mops
      Swept it for half a year,
Do you suppose,' the Walrus said,
      That they could get it clear?'
I doubt it,' said the Carpenter,
      And shed a bitter tear.
 
O Oysters, come and walk with us!'
      The Walrus did beseech.
A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
      Along the briny beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
      To give a hand to each.'
 
The eldest Oyster looked at him,
      But never a word he said:
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
      And shook his heavy head —
Meaning to say he did not choose
      To leave the oyster-bed.
 
But four young Oysters hurried up,
      All eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
      Their shoes were clean and neat —
And this was odd, because, you know,
      They hadn't any feet.
 
Four other Oysters followed them,
      And yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at last,
      And more, and more, and more —
All hopping through the frothy waves,
      And scrambling to the shore.
 
The Walrus and the Carpenter
      Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
      Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
      And waited in a row.
 
The time has come,' the Walrus said,
      To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
      Of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot —
      And whether pigs have wings.'
 
But wait a bit,' the Oysters cried,
      Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
      And all of us are fat!'
No hurry!' said the Carpenter.
      They thanked him much for that.
 
A loaf of bread,' the Walrus said,
      Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
      Are very good indeed —
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
      We can begin to feed.'
 
But not on us!' the Oysters cried,
      Turning a little blue.
After such kindness, that would be
      A dismal thing to do!'
The night is fine,' the Walrus said.
      Do you admire the view?
 
It was so kind of you to come!
      And you are very nice!'
The Carpenter said nothing but
      Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf —
      I've had to ask you twice!'
 
It seems a shame,' the Walrus said,
      To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,
      And made them trot so quick!'
The Carpenter said nothing but
      The butter's spread too thick!'
 
I weep for you,' the Walrus said:
      I deeply sympathize.'
With sobs and tears he sorted out
      Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
      Before his streaming eyes.
 
O Oysters,' said the Carpenter,
      You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
      But answer came there none —
And this was scarcely odd, because
      They'd eaten every one."

It's like China has taken the worst parts of capitalism, and merged them with the worst parts of communism.

Rumor: High-speed tube travel concept in the works

 
Photo courtesy of ET3. A Colorado company has developed a concept for high-speed tube travel, that could allow passengers to complete an LA to New York trip in 45 minutes. 

Is it really possible to travel between New York and LA in under an hour? An engineer in Colorado believes he has developed the future of travel. 

TRUE: Prototypes for tube travel are complete; company searching for a test site 

Imagine traveling from New York to Los Angeles in less time than it takes to get through those annoying airport security lines. Well, a company called ET3 out of Longmont, Colo., has developed a concept for the Evacuated Tube Transport, an airless, frictionless tube that can propel vehicles up to 4,000 miles per hour, effectively moving you from Los Angeles to New York in 45 minutes, all for the low, low cost of $100.
